Have you made your list and checked it twice? Get everything you need for the holidays at RCM! Allesafe has tasty treats for guests who need gluten free, dairy free or vegan options. Shoal Creek Farms has beautiful and tasty greens of all kinds- lettuces, chard, basil at least 6 different ways, a variety of microgreens, flowers, fresh ginger and more! Pine Ridge Gardens has turmeric root, bay leaves, and sage available. Maybe their Rosemary crackers would be delicious with the Fromage Blanc dip from Meadowlark Valley! Drewry Farms’ winter squash box is a bargain for a variety of squashes that should keep you stocked until the new year! Maybe a chicken dinner suits your family size better than a turkey? Get fresh whole chicken and other cuts from Young Family Farms! Keep it clean with bar soaps from The Purple Gypsy in Cinnamon Apple Pie, Lavender/Rosemary/Vanilla, Patchouli, Vanilla Bergamot and Winter Mint scents! Jams and jellies are great to have on hand this time of year; they make great impromptu gifts, can help create quick appetizers, sauces for main dishes, or add them to baked goods as ingredients or toppings. Give family and friends near and far (When packed correctly, jam/jellies and fruitcake travel well!) a real taste of the River Valley with local honey, jams/jellies and an enormous variety of baked goods that includes 2 different styles of fruitcake! Don’t forget to treat yourself to a little homemade Christmas candy, too! Let RCM help you create delicious holiday meals, provide convenient options for party foods and gifts and generally help you have a happy holiday season!

Any SOAP, LIP BALM, or LOTION from Bella Eden Farms, St. Andrews Soap Company or Mount Moriah Farms.

Infant HAT & SOCKS from Casa Perdido

MINI MUFFINS from Richter Farms – available in 2 Flavors! Avalon Farms PRALINE PECANS are to die for!

If you have a special cook in your life they may appreciate D’S FARMHOUSE KITCHEN RECIPES COOKBOOK (D’s JELLIES), BLUE HOPI NON GMO CORNMEAL (Grows in Rows) or ROSEMARY SALT (Avalon Farms). Richter Farms RANCH DRESSING MIX will have them begging for more!

Dianne (2),

For your bakers you may consider FRESH DUCK EGGS from Duck Nugget Farm. And while Kathy’s Cluckers don’t list them, FRESH QUAIL EGGS are often available for table sales on Fridays at Pickup.

Medicine Cabinets could benefit from COLLOIDAL SILVER from Richter Farms or FIRE ANT FIRST AID from Hortons Farm. We’re told that HEEL-IT-ALL BALM from Mt. Moriah Farms is highly effective as well.

2022 Classic or Cinnamon CREAMED HONEY from Hortons Farm. This is available individually or in 2 and 3 gift packages. Loveland LLC has WILD HIVE HONEY harvested from rescued bees.

HOT SAUCE and flavored VINEGARS are available from Casa Perdido and Grows in Rows

We can’t forget JAMS & JELLIES! Avalon Farms has a couple of delicious unique flavors.

Two growers offer FRESH PICKED SATSUMAS and you can’t go wrong with high quality GRASSFED BEEF (Casablanca, JBW & Smith Farms). And in the fresh category, Grier Acres offers SHELLED PECANS.

Lastly, CANDLES! You can’t have Christmas without candles! St. Andrews Soap Company has three lovely ones that are sure to delight.

AVALON FARMS:

jarred-items

Jarred Stuff for Christmas

Our unique products are “home made”, small batch delights that utilize our farm grown produce as much as possible.

Culinary Salts


Garlic – Starting with fresh garlic, pureed then added to Kosher Salt. Each flake of salt is coated in the pureed garlic, creating a wet sand texture. It is then dried for 2 hours to remove the moisture. This garlic salt doesn’t separate into salt and garlic powder like store bought.


Rosemary – If you love Rosemary but hate the texture of the twiggy leaves, this salt is for you. We start with a lot of fresh tender green Rosemary, a few cloves of garlic, pureed together. Then mix into the Kosher salt. Makes for a wonderful steak seasoning or anything you want some Rosemary in.


Pepper Jellies

Sassy Apricot – Everybody needs a little Sassy now and then. LOL This apricot based pepper jelly is amazing as a dipping sauce for grilled pork and chicken. Spread over cream cheese (goat cheese is even better!)


Bourbon Berry – Blueberries, Blackberries and Bourdon combine to make a rich berry flavor with a hint of jalapeno. A surprising number of customers wanted to use it as a pancake syrup. The deep burgundy color will highlight your table.

Jams

Christmas Jam – Christmas in a jar! is the usual comment when trying this jam for the first time. Cranberries, strawberries and blackberry juice along with a host of Christmas spices truly does create
Christmas in a jar. Wonderful addition to leftover turkey sandwiches.


Ginger Peach Jam – If you like ginger you will love this jam. Peaches, candied ginger, fresh ginger and spices kick this jam into high gear. Not your grandma’s peach jam.

Other Goodies

Squash Pickles – Like bread and butter pickles? You’ll love these! Squash and onions stay crunchy and not too sweet. Great on a hamburger or sandwich!

Pralines – Lightly candied pecans with just the right amount of sweet. Our gift version is approximately 6 ounces vacuum sealed in a pint jar for freshness.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GRIER ACRES: Things are pretty slow here. With Mom’s illness we just haven’t had the time to do much in the garden. Our pecans did not do well this year due to what we think was a lack of rain. We think we fixed our broken tiller but well we haven’t had a chance to till the garden and it looks terrible. Hey, but that means anything will be an improvement!! You have to choose to be happy sometimes :). A friend has been sharing their greens they planted so we are not suffering too bad lol. We do have plenty of honey and we acquired some chickens that are laying during the short days. Our onions did not do so good last year but we are planning to move them to ensure they get lots and lots of sunlight. We also have PLENTY of hickory nuts and beautiful long leaf Pine cones. They make a great decoration and a decorative firestarter too. Harry will be listing some fatlighter when he can feel he has enough to list for orders. We have lots of it but have to prepare for you all!!!
Almost forgot we do have some chestnuts. We salvaged the tree from hurricane Michael and staked it. It survived and has chestnuts!!!

Will try and list these items later today: Pine cones, country honey, fatlighter, hickory nuts, and CHESTNUTS!!

Most of all, I just want to wish you all a beautiful holiday season.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CASABLANCA RANCH: Thank you to all of our customers for your support this year! Merry Christmas!
